Mrs S P­re­to­ri­us, wri­tes:

Wal­king on San­tos be­ach on Sun­day, 9 Sep­tem­ber af­ter ne­ar­ly three days' con­ti­nu­ous rain, we find the mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ty wa­te­ring the grass in front of the re­stau­rant. The re­si­dents are re­qui­red to sa­ve wa­ter; why doe­sn't the mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ty?

The ground is sa­tu­ra­ted and the sprin­klers are on.

A­not­her so­re point is their re­cy­cling pro­gram­me. I found it stran­ge that hou­se­holds are en­coura­ged to re­cy­cle, but not the re­si­dents in the ca­ra­van parks. A

y­e­ar ago I pho­ned the la­dy in char­ge of the re­cy­cling com­pa­ny and as­ked why they do not col­lect re­cy­cla­ble ma­te­ri­al at the ca­ra­van parks. Her words

we­re: "I will ha­ve to speak to the mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ty." Now I ask: "W­hat is the­re to speak a­bout? De­li­ver blue bags to all the parks and en­coura­ge the cam­pers to re­cy­cle. I ha­ve seen how ma­ny bott­les, boxes, etc are put in black bags.

Co­me on Mos­sel Bay Mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ty. Get your act to­get­her and practi­se w­hat you pre­ach.

The ground is sa­tu­ra­ted and the sprin­klers are on.
